Nominations for 2013 IHR Transdisciplinary Book Award
The annual book award honors a work of academic non-fiction by an Arizona State University humanities faculty member on any campus. To be eligible, books must be written in English, published in 2011 or 2012, and written or co-written by a tenured or tenure-track, full-time ASU faculty member whose work reflects the finest contemporary transdisciplinary humanities-based scholarship on any topic.
A book that is transdisciplinary in methodology and scope works between, among, and within foundational models set-up by disciplines and transforms or transcends those disciplines by: restructuring conventional idea systems and practices; developing new knowledge frameworks or domains; or constructing new paradigms or focal concepts. In keeping with the mission of the IHR, the book should also focus on compelling topics of social or cultural importance—past, present, or future. Edited collections are not eligible.
Books may be nominated by the author(s) or their colleagues or publishers (one book per author, please). The winning book will receive a cash award of $1000, advertisement in IHR materials, and an award certificate. The author(s) will be featured at an awards ceremony and be asked to give a presentation which engages a discussion of the winning book. For each nomination, please arrange for the publisher to send 4 copies of the book to the IHR (if any questions arise, please submit nomination and contact the IHR).
